Quotes

Perry Parker: You know I... I talk to my teens about love, and I always say "This crazy thing called love, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry...but hey, man, it's what makes the world go 'round." Now, dying for love? Whoa! That's too momentous! I mean it's good for the books, but not for teens. Now, on the other hand, there's nothing wrong with a teen king or a teen queen FEELING like you could die for love. That way, you'd cherish every dance and you'd never waste a kiss.

Donovan Leitch is hot!
6 December 1998 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Donovan Leitch (model, actor, glam rock singer of the band "Nancy Boy", brother of actress Ione Skye "Say Anything", and son of 60's singer Donovan) is totally hot, and he is great in this movie! Especially his dancing! A must see for any fan of Dono, of 80's films, or of the 60's! Plus the music is great!
